Prosecco di Conegliano Extra Dry DOCG NV
Antonio Carpene founded his winery in 1860, having been fascinated with Champagne. A qualified chemist, he was in contact with Pasteur and Koch and was firmly convinced that a similar wine could be produced in Italy. He applied his knowledge to the Prosecco grape (now known as Glera), the majestic variety of the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene zone. Over 130 years of history, embracing four generations of the family, testify to Carpene Malvolti's dedication to product quality and they are unquestionably one of the leading producers.
